STink MITT Scratch 'N' Sniff (Teenage USA) Rating: NNN
Even if Stink Mitt were talentless hacks, I'd still have a soft spot in my heart for their fabulous concept of two bodacious, trashy cougars from Surrey who rhyme raunchy over lo-fi beats. Luckily, they've got the chops to back it up, which makes their Teenage USA debut so great. Think Princess Superstar times two, trading shambling raps about fucking underage boys, gangbanging fellas and the wonders of spandexed male genitalia, with old-school Casio keyboard riffs and tinny drum machines. And the campy inter-song skits give De La Soul's Three Feet High And Rising a run for its money. Although the gimmick does feel a bit played out by the end, I'm still tickled that they're the second group this year - after NYC crew Fannypack - to drop a camel toe track.
Stink Mitt descend on the 360 to launch Scratch 'N' Sniff tonight (Thursday, September 25).
